Pointwise Releases First Major Update of Next Generation Meshing Software

30 May 2008, Fort Worth, Texas - Pointwise, Inc. released today the first major update to Pointwise, their meshing software for computational fluid dynamics. This latest release continues the migration of meshing functionality from Gridgen, and adds several unique, time-saving capabilities to Pointwise.

Among the new features exclusive to Pointwise are 3D floating block boundaries to automatically produce high-quality structured volume grids, simplified ability to manage large, complex grids using the layer manager, automatic assembly of extrusion fronts, mesh clustering controls that float with shape changes, automatic selection of chained or linked entities, on-screen graphics for probing points and measuring distances, and faceted model intersections. New capabilities migrated into Pointwise cover the entire range of functionality including curve drawing, editing commands like joining, splitting, and orienting, extrusion, grid point distributions, and user-suggested improvements to the user interface.

"We have received a great deal of positive user feedback since the initial release of Pointwise last autumn and are glad to be able to release this latest update, version 16.01, in response to our customers' needs," said John Chawner, Pointwise's president. "Through the addition of Pointwise-exclusive functionality and the continued migration of Gridgen's capabilities, our customers will benefit from a product making the grid generation process even easier and more straightforward than our first release."
